Yay, my first post on Craftster (been lurking a long time).  I have my company Holiday party next week, and had bought some DB Alpaca Silk in Celery.  I had planned to make a wrap with a pattern from Scarf Style, but wasn't excited about the whole 'falling off my shoulders constantly' aspect of the wrap.  I found this pattern, and knew it was perfect.

I started last night, and I think I'm halfway finished.  Yay!  I'm using 2 strands of the yarn and size 11 circular needles (I heart my Denise Interchangables too!).  I just need to find a clasp, might need to hit Target like a few of you have.

I can't wait for the work day to be over so I can knit some more.  Wonder if anyone would notice if I knit at my desk.  Sadly, I think so.  Cheesy

Did anyone use Knitpicks Sierra? I only have one skein and I don't know if that's going to be enough since it's only 110 yards and I think the original used about 150 or so...I wear an XS so If igure I wouldn't need as much. But any ideas on yardage? Thanks

damnit! my stitch markers migrated over somehow and my yarn overs ended up not in line with the others, so i had to tink out a row. freaking false labor is messing with my concentration.

i'm liking my yarn a lot- joann's dolcetto- except that the white yarn is shedding all over my black t-shirt.  Undecided

To more closely replicate the super bulky yarn on the anthropologie version, I am using Rowan Big Wool yarn on size 17 needles, CO 37 stitches. The first line of the raglan increase goes like this.

Row 1, RS: k2, p4, yo, pm, p1, yo, p5, yo, pm, p1, yo, p11, yo, pm, p1, yo, p5, yo, pm, p1, yo, p4, k2

I'll post pics of the finished product soon.

i'm sure this is a completely idiotic question, but i just started knitting a month or so ago, so bare with me and don't make me feel too stupid-

on the raglan increases before you split the sleeves it says to end on a WS row. does that mean that the last row you knit before you split the sleeves is a WS? or is the last row you knit before moving on the RS row?

I just started this, and I've been working in regular stockinette (ie. yarn overs on the knit side) because my yarn overs on the purl side did not make eyelets.  Anyone know what I was doing wrong?  It's coming along really well and really quickly.  It's a really great pattern.

Yes Church, Do a ws row (knit in this case) right before you start the split...and no it's not a stupid question at all! I've been there sister!!

Yarn Ho,will work for yarn!

Hi y'all! I have finally started this, how funny is that since I am the one who started this KAL? Tongue yeesh.

Anyhow, I am using Cafe Au Lait Red Heart Light and Lofty (which is all I can afford right now) and 10mm needles.... and it is working up super fast... I can't believe how fast!  I will probably be able to post a FO tomorrw!


P.S. Julysey723 and everyone, I was thinking of putting together a pdf file of the pattern, I will send to Julsey for her okay before I post it! Cheesy

How do I know about reality? I just play with sticks and string.

Emms - I did it...I figured out the file hosting thing!  The pattern's available for download on my blog - in the sidebar under the photo of said pattern!
